The second edition of the bestselling Get Rich with Dividends shows how any investor can expect to gain double-digit returns using a time-tested conservative strategy. Written by Marc Lichtenfeldauthor, investment strategist, media spokesperson, and veteran of the equity marketsthis approachable guide has been updated to meet the needs of both savvy and novice investors.

Once you master this money-generating method, you'll want to teach it to your children to set them up for financial independence and help them avoid the problems that have plagued many investors in the past.

But the further you read the more you realize that the "assumptions" in the endless examples are far too optimistic. The author promises you can achieve yields of "at least" 11%, and total returns of 12% per year. The book tells you you should seek stocks with 4.7% dividend yield. That part is doable. But then it adds that you should look for stocks with dividends that grow 10% per year. That combination is much too optimistic in the real world. You can find stocks whose dividends grow at 10%, but they generally have yields between 1 and 3 percent. You can also find stocks that provide 4.7% yield. But they rarely grow at 10% per year, and even if they do it is only for short spurts of time. The combination of 4.7% and 10% dividend growth is nearly impossible to find in companies you've heard of.
The author publishes a newsletter which recommends certain stocks for his portfolio. But does he share any of those stocks in this book? No! His reason is that by the time you read his book the recommendations might be out of date.
I gave this book 3 stars because it should have been better. The author writes in an easy to read style, and like I said, much of the information is very useful and interesting. But any book on this topic ("dividend investing") should provide a more realistic selection criteria with more predictably achievable goals. Perhaps if instead of his 10-11-12 slogan, he had set 10-7-8 as a more realistic goal I would have preferred it. I preferred the Bruce Miller book on Retirement Investing for Income Only.
1. It is very difficult to find the criteria needed to fulfill the objective
2. The author does talk about alternative strategies briefly, but I would like to see a more systematic numeric or computational list of dividends and CAGR when trying to achieve the goals stated in the book.
The idea of focusing on a goal of reaching a specific income through dividend growth and reinvesting until you can achieve it is the backbone of investing and explained very well throughout the book. It should be understood by all investors as it is the greatest way to accomplish wealth over time. I just think the author's goals are a bit unrealistic in this day and age of low interest rates, which may be around for a long time.
1. The section on Options trading. If you don't know anything about Options trading this section will just confuse you. Still read it but just know that if you want to know more about Options trading you will need to get a dedicated book on the subject.
2. The examples he uses to make his points about Dividend Compounding are based on if you have a large sum of money to invest already. For those who are starting out with nothing do not get discouraged, just start out anyway and you can still achieve Dividend Compounding.
I really enjoy Marc's writing style and the content. Unfortunately for me, I'm learning these concepts in my late 50's. I really wish I had read this in my 20's.
I have read twice now, purchased the Kindle version and passed the book on to my son and his wife to read. They are in their early 20's and just had their first child.
I really think it can change their life. We've spoken about a couple of times but he still hasn't started but will soon.
I built a model portfolio of 10 stocks from the Aristocrat list and have proposed that as a college account for my granddaughter. Hoping to fund it with an initial purchase and annual gifts while she grows up.
Thanks Marc for helping me change our families' financial future.
On the up side, once I got to chapter 6 or so, things got more interesting and informative .
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in dividend investing. This book would be especially useful for novices or beginners . experienced investors may not get as much use from it.
